Campfire Banana Boats

These Campfire Banana Boats are easy to make and full of sweet delicious flavor. They come together quickly and only require a few simple ingredients. These definitely will not disappoint.

Summer is my favorite time of year. I love barbecues, campfires, and especially all the delicious food. This recipe is fun and easy for your kids to make, and it tastes amazing.

I do highly recommend bringing forks for them though, because they tend to get a little messy.

They are so easy to throw together and make the perfect treat around the campfire. These will not disappoint

I am usually not much of a banana lover, but this sweet treat, with the combination of chocolate chips and marshmallows, was a win win.

would these work in the grill or in the oven?

This recipe is best when made over the campfire and creating memories out in nature, but you could definitely make them in your grill or your oven.

We recommend baking them at about 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes. You can check on them as needed, to make sure the banana is cooked and browning and the marshmallows and chocolate chips are melted.

We still bake and grill ours, wrapped in foil, because it kind of contains the mess, and less dishes to do.

Be careful when taking them off the fire, out of the oven or the grill, because they will be very hot. You may want to give them a minute before opening the foil, because the marshmallows and the banana juices will be very warm.

what else could i add to these?

The thing I love about these banana boats, is all the variations you can make with them. They are so delicious and simple, and just a few toppings can change the entire taste.

Here are a few additions we recommend trying:

  • Fresh Strawberries
  • Caramel Sauce
  • Strawberry Sauce
  • Hot Fudge
  • Nutella
  • Peanut Butter
  • Peanut Butter Chips
  • Butterscotch Chips
  • M & M’s
  • Brown Sugar
  • Nuts (pecans, walnuts, almonds, peanuts, cashews, macadamia nuts, etc).

  • 5-6 banana's (however ripe you prefer them... I don't like any brown on mine)
  • About 3/4 cup chocolate chips (you can use peanut butter chocolate chips, white, or semi-sweet. You could also try breaking up pieces of your favorite candy bar. I bet a Reese's would be good!)
  • About 1 cup mini Marshmallows (you can cut up big ones too)
  • Aluminum foil


  1. Cut your aluminum foil into pieces that are about 8"x12" or 12"x12".
  2. Unpeel the banana, and cut a slice down the middle.
  3. You don't want to cut all the way through, but you just want a gap so you can put marshmallows and chocolate chips in it.
  4. Place the peeled and cut banana on the foil to decorate.
  5. Place desired amount of chocolate chips and marshmallows in the gap.
  6. I try to get as much as I can in there so It's full, gooey and delicious!
  7. Fold the foil over the banana so nothing will leak out of the foil, and so you can keep all the good stuff in it.
  8. Place over coals.
  9. It will usually take about 5 minutes to cook depending on how hot the coals/fire is.
  10. You can also cook them in the oven or over the grill if your campfire rains out.
  11. Medium heat on the grill for 5 or so minutes, checking every so often until desired the marshmallows and chocolate chips are at desired melting point
  12. Broil on high for 7-10 minutes in the oven, or until desired melting point.

    my mom made these for our first girl scout camping trip back in the 60's. I introduced them to my husband when we went on our first camping trip. He has introduced all of his cub scouts and boy scouts to banana boats. We love them

    Just made these for my husband and me. Yummy! Made them in the oven. Accidently cut a few bananas a little too deeply so they came apart (not a "boat" anymore), so I "glued" them back together with peanut butter and then loaded on the chocolate chips and marshmellows. Really rich but super yummy. Can't wait to make them for my nephews! Thanks for the great idea!
